You Make My Heart Buzz

This cute card was a Free Make-n-Take!

Hello there.  And thank you for stopping by.   Yes, I did a Free Make-n-Take card at a recent event where I was a vendor.  I normally do that so people can see how easy it is to create a card in just a short time.  Make sure to check out my calendar for upcoming events and classes. 

I am happy as the bee in my below project... but a little sad too. Why? 

Well, our Last Chance Sale started and running through the end of April 2024.  I am happy because the Bee Builder Punch and Bee My Valentine Photopolymer stamp set are both carrying over into the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.  

So why am I sad?  Because the stamp set and punch will only bee (lol!) sold separately... meaning no bundle discount AND the Bee Mine 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper will retired along with the Hearts & Flowers Embellishments.  So that means that suite collection will be gone.

Let's take a look at this little Bee Card... 

#creativecardcloset #beemine #lisabrown

  • I used Daffodil Delight for my card base and stamped the honeycombs all around the edges of the card.  
  • Stamped my sentiment in the bottom left of Basic White CS measuring 3-3/4 x 5
  • Layered two pieces of the Bee Mine DSP measuring 2 x 3
  • Use a Dimensional to pop up the bee that was stamped & punched from Daffodil Delight CS, add a flower embellishment to finish it off

The Last Chance Sale runs until April 30, 2024.   You can Shop With Me and check out all the great deals!

Pink Zinnias Split Opening

Welcome back to my blog, where I love to share my projects, events and news updates regarding Stampin' Up!

Today I'm sharing a project I'm call the the Pink Zinnias Split Opening card.  If you have not seen the Flowering Zinnia Suite Collection yet, you can check it out in my online store Here.  

You can also see my two other projects I have posted:  Gratitude card and Zinnias with Sparkle

So this card is a little unexpected.  Why?  Because of the color I decided to use, and I just adore this split opening.   Let's take a look...

(click on above image to get a close up look)

I used Petal Pink card stock, layers of Basic White and the Flowering Zinnias 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper.

  • I built up the flowers and leaves on Deckled Rectangle pieces
  • Two flowers colors with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends and one with Pumpkin Pie
  • The flower centers are coordinating colors with a Lemon Lolly flower ring.   I added a little Granny Apple Green highlighting with my sponge daubers. 
  • I stamped three sets of leaves with Granny Apple Green with Stampin' Blends

Using Stampin' Dimensionals, I layered the flowers to get different heights. 

Finishing the card, add several of the self-adhesive shiny sequins from the suite collection. 

Important Note:  The Sequins are on Back Order!  This will make the entire suite collection unorderable.  NOTE that everything else is still available and you can order everything separately.... Just make sure to order the stamps and dies Bundle to get the 10% discount.  I have listed everything below.

Zinnia bunch with some sparkle

I have an easy card share today, using the New Online Exclusive Suite Collection - Flowering Zinnias

Zinnia suite

The large zinnia cluster stamp has lots of detail to it but it makes it easy to color and add contrast.  I used Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie Blends makers for the flowers and then Granny Apple Green with highlights of Old Olive for the leaves.

I had to give you one more look at the word banner... Look at that sparkle!!!  The Berry Burst Glimmer Specialty Paper is Awesome!  Comes in a pack with Old Olive & White (item # 163769)

#creativecardcloset #bunchofzinnias #sparkle

So this is a simple layered card but you could definitely step-up by adding another mat layer, and some die cuts.
